The Truth About Emma Dunham Kelly-Hawkins
The name of writer Emma Dunham Kelley-Hawkins will not appear in future editions of the Schomburg Library of 19th-Century Black Women Writers. That's because Holly Jackson, a doctoral student at Brandeis University in Massachusetts, uncovered the truth about the writer's racial background. Jackson tells NPR's Farai Chideya about her research.
